Password Safe is a simple and secure password management application available under Open Source approved license. It means “free software” and it's also probably the oldest password manager. This tiny application can help you to create and store usernames and passwords. You will need to remember only one password, called "Master Password" that will allow you to unlock your entire collection of usernames and passwords. This program has several features that will allow you to "generate, store, organize, retrieve, and use complex new passwords, using password policies that you control." With this security tool you can increase the protection of your passwords.

Creating and Opening a Safe

Password Safe allows users to store all passwords in a single "safe" (password database), or to create multiple databases for different purposes (e.g., one for work, one for personal use). Each database is independent can be moved and used on different systems, as long as the same version of Password Safe is installed. Databases are encrypted with an encryption key derived from the master password (the master password, however, is not kept in the database in any form).

If you are using Password Safe for the first time, press the New Database button. You will be asked to choose the name and location of your password database (the default, "pwsafe.psafe3", is fine). Afterwards, you will be prompted to enter a master password that is used to encrypt and lock the contents of your new safe.

Create a New Database

There are two ways that a new database can be created. By clicking New Database from the Safe Combination Entry dialog when the program is started, or from the File > New Database menu once Password Safe has been opened. Using either method causes the Safe Combination Set Up dialog to appear.

Whether the answer is one or hundreds, Password Safe allows you to safely and easily create a secured and encrypted user name/password list. With Password Safe all you have to do is create and remember a single "Master Password" of your choice in order to unlock and access your entire user name/password list.

Security starts with you, the user. Keeping written lists of passwords on scraps of paper, or in a text document on your desktop is unsafe and is easily viewed by prying eyes (both cyber-based and human). Using the same password over and over again across a wide spectrum of systems and web sites creates the nightmare scenario where once someone has figured out one password, they have figured out all your passwords and now have access to every part of your life (system, e-mail, retail, financial, work).

New Features:
n/a Entries and Groups can be exported to plain text, XML, or to a new PasswordSafe file.
777 Added command line option to force choice of tall or wide dialog screens.
772 Added a tooltip for the copy-to-clipboard button in the generator.
768 Caps Lock indicator added to passphrase entry dialogs.
